Microfiction Monday #45 The Skeleton


Susan from 'Stony River' organises and hosts this weekly meme. Thank you Susan J She provides a picture and the challenge is to create a story in 140 characters or less – including punctuation! Click here to read more marvels of microfiction – and perhaps join in. It's fun!
Here is this week's picture accompanied by my offerings.

  1. Janice, aside from enjoying writing, we sure have one other thing in common--our MUSIC preferences. I played violin in symphonies for lots of years, etc.....
